"Dear God: Please please please make us not have to pee or poop during the marathon.
Love, Kari, rUntoNamAste, and Laura
To this prayer, I add: "In this we pray, oh mighty Atalanta, goddess of Running and Romance!!!"
I have done some research on our Running Goddess, Atalanta - CHECK THIS OUT!Appearance: A beautiful and muscular young woman. (fitting)
Symbol or Attributes of Atalanta: Golden apples, running sandals (Kari's not so keen on the sandals, but thinks they may be cute)
Atalanta's Strengths: Her speed as a runner, power as a wrestler, (oh my!!) commitment to independence, loyalty.
Atalanta's Weaknesses:Kills suitors who cannot outrun her. (totally digging the suitor slaying part - watch out any males who finish slower than us in Paris!!!)
Please feel free to join us in praying to our new- found Goddess, Atalanta. Every little bit will help.
